People are spoilt for choice when it comes to options for transport in the city: there is public transport – buses, taxis and autorickshaws – and there are private vehicles. But how many of these are options for a person with a disability?
Inclusiveness is a concept often forgotten. This is why the theme for the International Day of Disabled Persons 2017 on December 3 is ‘Transformation towards a sustainable and resilient society for all’. The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda pledges to “leave no one behind,” pitching for persons with disabilities, as both beneficiaries and agents of change to “fast-track the process towards inclusive and sustainable development.”
